HOW IT HAPPENED

The Dordt Defenders surrendered a 12-0 run near the midpoint of the first half and never recovered in dropping their GPAC opener on Wednesday night in Sioux City.

The Defenders grabbed an early 7-3 lead but trailed 9-7 before a Cade Bleeker basket tied it at 9-9.  The Mustangs proceeded to go on a 12-0 run over the next 2:30 and Dordt was playing catch up the rest of the game.

Morningside was up 44-26 at halftime with Dordt mounting one serious rally in the second half when Trey Hinote’s three-point basket with 12:08 left in the game cut the gap to 58-47 and capped a 7-0 Dordt run.

A Morningside timeout ignited an 8-0 run and Dordt was never closer than 14 until another Hinote three made the final 88-75.
